I came across some cool kitchen towels at the Dollar Tree last week. I added them to my fabric stash and waited patiently for some inspiration.
I bought the Roman shades at The Christmas Tree Shop for $10 each. I hung them, but I felt that they needed a little something on top. Then I remembered those towels. I went back to the Dollar Tree and bought the rest.
I turned them in to a cool valance. I sewed 2 towels together. Added the ribbon down the center to hide the seam. I backed them with some fabric from an old tablecloth. I'm lovin' my new curtains! I have two towels left. I might make some pillows. Not bad for $10 in towels.
